Proposing a New Holiday: Dependence Day!

Independence Day parades, fireworks, celebrations!
Patriotic Americans give thanks for our blessings,
Faithful, informed, involved; each speaking up
for freedom, morality, and sharing the Gospel.
Three cheers for the red, white, and blue!

Now, everybody, let's proclaim our Dependence Day!
Let's acknowledge and give thanks to God.
We will always be able to depend on Him;
past our own abilities to think it up, figure it out,
or live by our own efforts and abilities.

Let's take time for a serious, honest talk
with our Creator; He loves each of us.
Life is too short to show Him disrespect.
His Word is clear; His grace is given to those who ask.
Three cheers for Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
